ENG 340
Creative Writing across the Arts (3 Cr.)
Prerequisite(s):  ENG 110 or ENG 116

This course focuses on the generation of creative writing in multiple genres and media, including poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction, and graphic novels. Students will study and practice writing in a workshop atmosphere and will engage in intensive reading of excellent writings, most of which employ interdisciplinary, cross-genre approaches that encompass painting, photography, and other visual art. We will follow discussions of readings with writing experiments designed to spark original thinking, to develop facility with writing, and to enhance understanding of the creative process. Students will gain in-depth knowledge of the possibilities of creative writing and will apply this experience by writing both short creative pieces and longer works.
